Department of Athletic Training


A career in athletic training is unique because it combines a well-rounded knowledge of the sports industry with an expertise in training, conditioning and medicine. As an athletic trainer, you'll interact with athletes at all skill levels--from those on the little league team to those on a professional playing field. On any given day, you may find yourself administering emergency first aid, making medical decisions, devising and documenting treatment protocols or serving as a liaison to a physician. Your responsibilities may extend to the management of a training facility, patient education on health topics such as nutrition, exercise, injury prevention and rehabilitation, and communication with other colleagues under the "sports medicine" umbrella, including other athletic trainers, coaches, physicians, nurses, insurance companies and physical therapists.
